AVN Book Club: 1960's Good Housekeeping Magazines
If you ever doubted that owning or reading vintage magazines was a good investment, I am hear to tell you that I find them to be one of the best sources for learning about the lifestyles of the past.
With these magazines that I am sharing with you today, reading through them honestly made me feel like I was stepping out of time. I never read vintage Good Housekeeping magazines before so needless to say I was intrigued about what I could find. Many magazines from yesteryear, like today, focused on specific topics like fashion, current events, holidays, recipes, etc but Good Housekeeping seems to have it all.
Inside I found interesting articles focusing on fashion, recipes, advice columns, short stories, and even some Hollywood gossip! Goodness they are a smorgasbord of 1960's awesomeness. I cannot recommend enough getting your hands on some vintage magazines. The ads are mind blowing, the recipes are creative, and the fashion tips are spot on.
I know it would be difficult to get your hands on magazines pre-1930's but grab and read what you can. Vintage magazines are like little time machines allowing you to step into the past. They give you a chance to see what it was like to live in that time.
A wonderful reader of mine graciously offered to send me these great 1960's Good Housekeeping magazines and when I received them I truly felt spoiled. Big thanks to Desirae from Dolled-up Desirae blog!!!
